Family room makeover Reveal / $100 Room Challenge

Chastity Fabry

It’s time for the family room makeover reveal! Check out the result that I’ve been working on for the past month as part of the $100 Room Challenge.

It’s the 3rd time I participate in the $100 Room Challenge which consists of updating a room, for $100 USD (It will be 125 $ for me!!) in 1 month. The first time, I took on the bathroom and in September, it was the turn of my daughter’s bedroom.

Nothing gives me more satisfaction than completely transforming a space.  Give me beige walls, furnishings opposite of my style, and I’m brimming with ideas for how to give the space new life.  Enter a recent client project: The Farmington Project.

My clients are a young, hip couple expecting their first child.  They wanted to update their family room with a neutral, soothing, sophisticated palette.  Here is what it looked like during our initial consultation.
